    I have to admit, sustaining legitimate interest is become daunting.

    The last time this team wasn't a solid regular season team/1st round exit team was during the Sheed era.

    Selling 'patience' is Neil's primary export. As long as this team is being managed by Neil, purgatory is here to stay.

    Ladies, what say you?

    I was just having this discussion yesterday with another fan. It is tough to think there is more to look forward to when so little has changed.

    Near the bottom in assists, forced turnovers, fast break points.....almost requires that the team be on fire from 3-pt range and even if they are, it has to be on a night when there defense is better than normal.

    Not exactly a recipe for long term success especially in the Playoffs.

    I wish the local media had more writers around the team to give us the lowdown about the current organizational status or direction. Fucking Olshey has done such a great job of neutering the media so that every single quote attributed to him tells you nothing. And the stuff he releases to Woj is either blowing smoke or inevitable news items. Of course, you can always go over to Blaze's Edge and get the sports equivalent of reading wallpaper.

    Neutered media is about right. And anyone that questions the Blazers in a way they don't like (ie Ropp, Quick) is pressured by the Blazers to be let go. The next time anyone in the Blazer media actually asks Olshey a tough question with a legit follow up....will be the first.

    What? We got out of the 1st round only twice in Sheed years. Lakers personally took us out in the first round three times. 99 and 00 were exceptions.

    I mostly agree with your post but your commitment to this lame signature is baffling.

    We need a new GM making that trade.

    It’s about time the majority is feeling this. Only @BonesJones seems to just want a coaching change and that’s it.

    I’m glad this post era LMA team is coming to end. It’s time to move on. Since 2015 to now this team has been completely mediocre. It’s better to roll the dice on a new collection of draft picks then to “hope” Mclillard and Co. wil finally click

    So I say good riddance on this era and let us welcome the future to build this thing right

    Personally, I've got enough sports teams and interests to pull me through the Blazer doldrums. With that said, I expect changes to happen after new ownership takes control of the team. However, there will be a lot of speculation until that time and that will keep me fully entertained. :biglaugh:

    Why do you say "just" changing the coach like it's a bad thing? That is one of the easiest things to try when things are stagnant.

    Or should GS have traded Curry, Thompson, and Green when they fired Jackson?

    Curry Thompson and Green were all still if not barley out their rookie contracts.

    Lillard is almost 30 for god sakes. This era is coming to end. Face it and embrace it. I, for one is ready to welcome a new era of blazer basketball. This one right now sucks..
